    I wanna say Gap Band's 'You Dropped a Bomb on Me,' or 'Superstition' by Stevie Wonder ... they'd me my favorites.

    But I have to go with Rick James' 'Super Freak' ... such a stone cold hammer-groove of a hook, that 10 years later somebody lifted THE WHOLE THING, changed the words, and presto! Yet ANOTHER great funk song.



    I friggin' love this song ... James Brown's first hit. It's plenty funky, but still it's probably more soul than funk, right?

    I dare anybody to listen just once .........

                        Luckily you don't like as many funk songs as board games.

                              This song is very recent but you old school funk fans will be shocked at how much it sounds like the old stuff.
